The Berlin Jacket is one of my favorite patterns – I love the style lines on the pattern, I think it has a really impressive looking end result, and I don’t even have to tell anyone that it was one of the easier things I sewed this year. Or that it took me less than 2 hours. I can just humble brag that yes, I sewed my coat, and yes, I know it is awesome… And keep those other little bits to myself!
I’ve lost track of how many garments I’ve sewn with the Minerva Exclusive line of viscose challis since their release this summer, but what I CAN tell you is that I’m not going to be done any time soon! Today, I’m excited to show you our matching spooky-season outfits.
The Marlo Sweater exists to make all of your cozy grandpa dreams come true, and it is most certainly doing it for me! I wish I had sewn this pattern as soon as I received the fabric, but instead I put it off for a little while because the pattern felt a little intimidating to me. It felt like the outcome must warrant a pretty detailed or difficult process, and I was a little bit nervous that I would mess it up somehow. It turns out that no matter how long you’ve been sewing, things will still seem a little bit out of reach from time to time.
It isn’t very often that I purchase a pattern and use it quickly. But the Bubble Frock got me – I couldn’t wait! This pattern is SO stinking cute. The big full skirt, the horizontal princess seams (hello, I did not even know this was a thing!), the BUBBLES. I didn’t have any particular fabric picked out when I purchased the pattern, but I knew I wanted to grab it right away.
